Tim Johnson first picked up the guitar at age 13, and hasn't put it down since. In 2001, he earned a BA in Music Business from Elmhurst College. He has been teaching private guitar and bass lessons since 2000 in the western suburbs and running rock band programs for kids since 2010.
When outside of lessons, Tim evenly divides his time between practicing, rehearsals and a plethora of varying live performance situations, including everything from Chicago street festivals to weddings to large events like Riot Fest to big and small club shows to performing on the street. Trying to stay as busy as possible, he has held tenure in countless bands. This constant real-world performing experience enriches every lesson at Suburban Music.
